[OSGeo-Discuss] Should old Project Steering Committee members be put out to pasture?

One of your developers has been very active, contributed lots of code, 
advice, documentation but then their priorities change. They haven't got 
as much time for the project, or maybe the project grows and they can't 
keep up with increased email traffic.

The developer still holds a lot of knowledge about the project, probably 
talks it up at conferences and probably trades off their status as a PSC 
member in developer circles.

Should the developer step down from the Project Steering Committee?
Should the developer be offered a new title - "Project's Honoured 
Grandfather" or similar?

What do other OSGeo projects do with their old guard?
